France has been stagnant for so long I don't think the population wants to work anymore. They think someone will bail them out. Who can afford to? Every country that has gone the socialism route including the US is deeply in debt. Socislism is breaking the back of western countries. I think Obama and his policies are responsible for the downward spiral and unhappiness in the US.

. It was actually kind of funny to see the apostles of orthodoxy trying to portray the cautious, mild-mannered François Hollande as a figure of menace. He is “rather dangerous,” declared The Economist, which observed that he “genuinely believes in the need to create a fairer society.” Quelle horreur!

Over the weekend, socialist French President Nicolas Sarkozy lost to mega-socialist Francois Hollande. Hollande vowed to increase taxes on the "rich" by 75 percent, lower the retirement age and increase government spending, putting France on a direct path towards Greece which means bailouts on the backs of American taxpayers.

The election results leave in question what happens now to the eurozone and its debt crisis. France is a key player in plans to navigate it. And Greece is a recipient of bailout by the European Central Bank that requires the government to slash spending.
